    Now, addicted to PM @ 5 on Radio 4 to listen to 'that' voice and sense of humour. Beginning to wonder if I ought to consider intervention or therapy.

    Am I alone?

    He is so fond of himself I think he can do without my affection. He does have his moments as a presenter and interviewer but in general he's not a favourite of mine. Evan Davies is my hero.

    No, you can add me to it.

    PM is a programme I always enjoyed listening to on my travels around the country. It tackles current affairs from an angle that's rarely possible in the sound bite news media that TV offers. Eddie has the ability to appear incredulous that the ordinary person should need to suffer the indignity of life under the government regimes he or she voted for, once the election rhetoric is over.

    Having dealt with the daily witterings of the political class, there's always time for a matter or two which covers how Joe Public manages to make the most of life, despite what the economy and so on throws at him.

    Radio most of the time for me, these days. I prefer to hear what people have to say rather than what they look like.

    Thanks D! You put my thoughts into the sort of words that I wanted to use, but can't.

    Yes, DoY, that's exactly it. You nailed it.

    When we came back to England after 5 yrs without Radio 4, I nearly cried listening to Eddie. You don't appreciate quality until you've been without it! 5 yrs later I still love Eddie.
